“My mother has been asking me when I’m going to come back,” she said. “And the answer is never. I tell her I don’t know. Well, she and my dad are getting up there in years, and they want a family celebration with everyone. Including my cheat of an ex and his family.”
“She just asked when I’m going to be here for Thanksgiving, and I told her that work got in the way. She broke down crying over the phone and pleaded with me to put in a time off request so I can see her.”
While she does admit that she misses her mom terribly, she just doesn’t want to deal with her ex and her sister because she understandably hates them.
Her other family members found out that she’s not coming home for the 10th year in a row this Thanksgiving, and they believe she should come home, as they state it’s not exactly “healthy” to be working so hard and not spending time with the family.
“Honestly, I can’t stand to see my ex happy with his affair partner and what could have been us,” she concluded. Also, I am spending part of the holidays in Bali and have better things to do than be miserable in…Cleveland.”
Regardless, she’s curious if it’s mean of her to tell her mom she still won’t come home for the holidays. If you had an ex that knocked up your sister, would you feel the same way as her, and would you want to avoid your family at all costs?
